I started tutoring on my own approximately nine years ago and I decided to join the WyzAnt community in order to reach out to more students. I have tutored over 500 hours through Wyzant to date and I hold a 4,9/5,0 star rating. Feel free to read through feedback from my previous students to get a better idea of my tutoring qualifications.
My total SAT score was 2170 - M770 CR700 W700. My composite ACT score was 34 - M35 E34 R34 S31. My GRE score was Verbal 158 (78th percentile), Quantitative 167 (94th percentile), and Analytical Writing 5,5 (98th percentile). I specialize in SAT and ACT preparation for high school students. I am also interested in tutoring college students preparing for the GRE general test. For test preparation, I assign a decent amount of homework each week and I spend the majority of my sessions going over the questions my students answer incorrectly.
I would like all potential students to understand that the SAT and ACT are not exactly the same, and therefore require different types of preparation. If you have any questions about this, feel free to send me a message. I also put together my own review packets for the SAT and ACT, covering all the main concepts for the math sections and the grammatical concepts for the SAT writing section/ACT English section.
I am also focusing on helping high school and college students write and edit their college admission essays and scholarship essays (for undergraduate or graduate school). I offer face-to-face sessions with students to assist in all phases of the writing process - coming up with a catchy/meaningful idea, planning out the content and structure, and editing the drafts. The rate for these sessions will be my standard rate of $60 per hour.
However, I am also willing to offer assistance via email for students who wish to have their essays edited without meeting face-to-face. The rate for this type of session will vary depending on factors such as the length of the essay, how many rounds of editing are needed, and the overall amount of time that I spend editing the essay. I am willing to discuss a rate that is reasonable for both me and the student/parent.
As far as my cancellation policy goes, I require notice at least 24 hours in advance for a lesson cancellation. If I do not receive adequate notice, I will charge a $25 cancellation fee. This is primarily due to the fact that if I schedule someone for a particular day and time, I am filling that time slot and not allowing other students the chance to take that slot. Therefore, I am losing business by allowing students to cancel at the last minute. However, I offer all of my students 1 last minute cancellation free of charge; subsequent late cancellations will be subject to the $25 fee. The only major exception to this policy is a cancellation due to severe weather conditions, in which case I will not charge a cancellation fee if the lesson is cancelled at the last minute.
While all of my "professional" and "academic" qualities are certainly important, I think it's also necessary for you to understand more about me as a person. I consider myself a "nerd" and I am no longer self-conscious about it - it's who I am. I love school, but aside from that I enjoy reading and writing. To me, the smell of a bookstore is like that of a decadent chocolate cake to many others. Although throughout the school year I typically only engage in academic writing, in my down-time I write poetry and I finished writing my first young adult novel during NaNoWriMo 2016. I'm an athlete. When I was younger I did karate for about 6,5 years and got my black belt. Now, running is one of my passions. I ran my first half-marathon this past March with my Mom in RI. I don't consider myself fast, but the mental reprieve that I experience during a long run is something I could never give up. Finally, during the winter I take pleasure in crocheting. I make hats, blankets, stuffed animals, and anything else I can come up with. Yes, my interests are eclectic. Yes, I'm eccentric. I think that these parts of me make me a better tutor because I'm well-rounded and I'm always trying to come up with new ways to help my students. Also, I think it's important for my potential students and their parents to know more about me than simply my academic abilities.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I hope to hear from you soon!
I graduated from West Chester University in 2019 with a degree in Mathematics. After graduation, I landed a job at a math tutoring center, where I tutor children in grades K-12.

If you or your child needs help with math homework or needs additional lessons, feel free to reach out to me. I'm usually available throughout the week, weekends, Holidays, etc.
The best way to reach me is via email:
Please allow up to 24 hours for me to respond to your email/ request. In the email please include you (or the child's name), grade, and what subject of math they are requesting help for, i.e Algebra, multiplying fractions, etc. I plan to run these services online for the time being due to the current situation of COVID-19.

I'll tell you what, the first TWO lessons/sessions will be free! Additional rates may apply.

I graduated from Princeton Unversity, with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical and Biological Engineering in Spring 2018.

I continued during my summer breaks from college, even though I had various internships and research jobs. I am working full-time (40 hours a week) as a clinical research assistant at CHOP, but would love to continue to teach on the side! I love working with everyone from children to young adults. I am willing to work out location, hours, and what services I am willing to provide, depending on the student -- this includes via skype for interested students that are not in the Philadelphia area. Please contact me for interest and pricing and I am sure we can work something out!

All of the subjects I tutor I have exceeded phenomenally. Whether it is volleyball, a sport I have played for 4 years now, or public speaking which takes part in my daily activism; you can be confident that you'll be getting your money's worth. I am a high school senior currently about to graduate. I have experience in tutoring my selected topics as well as teaching them. I have successfully tutored my peers and have seen them achieve many of the academic and athletic goals they had aspired to reach.
I am a 30 year old educator from New York who has been working as a teaching assistant and tutor for over ten years. My experience ranges between children still in primary school all the way up to college/university level students. I have experience teaching ELA (English Language Arts), Reading, Writing, Essays, College Prep/Admissions, New York State Regents Exams, SAT Prep, Creative Writing, and more. I also have experience tutoring basic Music Theory and elementary school level Mathematics and history, but English is my best subject and also one that I am the most passionate about.
I consider myself to be an empathetic and patient person. I have worked with students from all sorts of backgrounds and walks of life, and my experience has taught me that everyone learns differently. The best approach to teaching is to have patience, empathy, and understanding. If a student doesn't learn something the first time around, then perhaps they simply need it to be explained differently, or to find a method that works the easiest for their personal comprehension and ability.
I am extremely flexible with my time and prices, so please do not hesitate to contact me solely based on the prices you may see posted above. They are absolutely negotiable, as I am more concerned about helping those who need tutoring than a set price range.
I look forward to hearing from you, and look forward to working together to help you reach your personal academic goals! Talk to you soon!
Hello, my name is Serkan www.*** I have graduated from a bachelor’s degree in chemistry in San Jose State University and later obtained my master’s degree in physical chemistry in San Francisco State University. As part of a chemistry program, I have also taken a sufficient amount of advanced math and physics courses (up to 2 years).
Prior to my graduate program, I worked as a tutor for 1–2 years obtaining nearly 100 hours of one-on-one tutoring with high school and college students on subjects including chemistry, physics, and advanced math subjects. Much of my tutoring experience has been through Wyzant and other tutoring agencies. I really enjoyed the experience and have improved the grades and performances of many of my students.
During my graduate program, I worked as a teaching assistant (TA) for 2–3 years, in which my supervisor was the dean of the department. This job involved me teaching laboratory sections for general chemistry courses with up to 30 students in some classes. I helped prepare my students for midterms, finals, and supervised them through the conceptual and hands-on experiences of experimental chemistry on a bi-weekly basis.
I generally tutor in a way to get my students to really enjoy the subject they are learning and try to get them to think creatively towards solving problems. I realize that of one of the greatest hurdles students have in learning physical sciences (e. g. chemistry and physics) and math subjects is the lack of visual teaching to help them connect complex concepts in their minds. In order to overcome this, I generally take a more visual approach to get students to be able to “see” the concepts in their minds. That way, students obtain a deeper understanding of the material, which not only helps them to pass the class, but also gives them insight of the subject that will help them in future coursework.
I offer tutoring in chemistry (just about all kinds except biochemistry), college physics, and math courses (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and statistics). I really encourage students who are interested in improving their grades in these subjects to contact me. If you are patient and willing to do the work, I promise I can help you boost your grades and improve your performances in your classes. My first meeting is always a FREE consultation session. If you feel that I am not the person for you, there’s no charge on your part. I hope we can work together to improve your coursework and help you pass those classes.
Hope to see you soon!
Currently, I am finishing my fourth full year of teaching elementary school. I am a 5th grade special education teacher in an integrated co-teaching classroom. For two years, I previously taught grades 1-3, so I have experience working with younger and older elementary aged students. I am familiar with the curriculum across all elementary grades. Starting for the Summer 2018, I can easily accommodate schedules, as mine is very flexible and open.
I have taught elementary math for four and a half years. This past school year, I've had numerous PD's on elementary math. I work in small group and whole group settings during math, and differentiate instruction using manipulatives, visuals, and other ways to engage students.
This past year I have worked very closely with the reading teacher at my school, to improve both reading and writing in the classroom. Reading is heavily emphasized in the classroom, and is something the students practice every day. I use the practices of having both small groups, and whole class reading. I use a "I do" "we do" "you do" approach to reading, so students are able to see the model, practice as a class, and complete work independently.
Phonics is practiced closely in the younger grades, but still incorporated into my 5th grade lessons. For my lower students, I work both in small group and 1:1 settings to improve phonics and fluency. I do this by reading books, using flash cards, using illustrations, and charts.
Students practice spelling by using flash cards, illustrations, and participating in engaging and effective educational games.
I have an open schedule and am willing to accommodate any time during the week to meet.

I currently teach for the DOE and specialize in Middle School Math and Science. I work with a wide range of students that vary at all levels. My students range in their learning based on their learning needs. Typically, I work with students that need to be challenged through enrichment, to better prepare them for an intense academic environment, as well as making several modifications for learners that require scaffolding techniques by applying learning strategies that benefit their own learning style. I implement new methods on how to tackle any multi-step word problem and show learners different methods in problem solving.
